Second Battle of Manassas
— Day Three - August 30, 1862 - 4 p.m. —Generals Robert E. Lee and James Longstreet both concluded the moment had arrived to launch a massive Confederate offensive at Second Manassas. Longstreet's wing of the army - nearly 30,000 troops - stood primed to sweep forward and sever the Union army's line of retreat. Their goal, ironically, was Henry Hill - the key terrain of the First Battle of Manassas.
